Yes, I've been walking!

1. To the Grocery Store
2. To the Pharmacy
3. To the Post Office
4. To the Library

This is a great motivation for walking..!!

It helps to bring a emoticon

Good for all of you WALKERS out there..

I bought some new shoes from academy today. Tomorrow I am learning the via route. My boyfriend has a problem with my wanting to walk. But my car broke down and these past few days have sucked having to lean on people more and be less independent.

I took my own advise - I walked to the post office across the street instead of taking the car - mental bloc you know - so much easier just to get into that vehicle and and drive - but I didn't I took Dalhouise and walked and I enjoyed it..

before I had the car - had no choice - had to walk to shop or take a bus.
I would go with a little four wheel food cart.
At that time it was half hour walk each way to the mall / stores for me.
NOW I have a car and I moved.. I seldom walk to the store even though it is even just across the street - -- I'm bad. ------- it is a small plaza and a large parking lot and busy highway to cross... :)

I live only a 15 minute walk from my local grocery store and post office, so my husband and I usually walk or ride our bicycles when we need to pick up only a few things!

I like this idea! I will have to measure out how far to Trader Joe's and to Raley's or Lucky's.

Anyone walk to the grocery store? How long of a walk is it for you?

To heb its only maybe 2 or 3 miles total. To walmart its a lot more maybe 10 total. Anyways I am thinking of taking a backpack with me and just walking to the grocery store when I need stuff. It would save gas and get exercise in.

Anyone already do this?
